MIT’s Department of Distinctive Collections presents a virtual lecture by 2023 Women@MIT Fellow Rachel Lane, program associate in the Institute’s Center for Oral History.

Lane, who is one of only two recipients of this prestigious fellowship, will discuss her “Mapping Migration at MIT: Eighteen Stories of International Women” project. This interactive story map explores how women’s work in science has crossed international borders and includes the oral histories of chemist Uma Chowdhry and biochemistry professor Barbara Panning found in the Science History Institute Digital Collections.
